Text Encoding data feeds to UDirect

P: 2
Here's my situation. I've written an app that collects various messages and information online. It stores it in MySQL, then when requested creates a feed for a program called uDirect which generate PDF's based on templates. Currently everything works fine. But, we would like to collect foreign languages now. Here's what happens when Japanese is typed in: の is what I get. Now my browser displays this fine, but uDirect doesn't like it.

My first question is what is that format called? Secondly question: I know uDirect likes .rtf docs, so what format is that and can I convert the above format to that format?

I know this is all pretty vague, but I'm really stuck and could use some help!

Stupid me! The browser of course displays the special charactor instead of the encoding. What I get is with dashes added to is: &-#-12398;
